This European Standard specifies methods for measuring the performance of clothes washing machines for household use, with or without heating devices utilising cold and/or hot water supply. It also deals with appliances for water extraction by centrifugal force (spin extractors) and is applicable to appliances for both washing and drying textiles (washer-dryers) with respect to their washing-related functions. This European Standard also covers washing machines which specify the use of no detergent for normal use. The following modifications have been made with respect to DIN EN 60456:2005-09: a) a test procedure for a combined test sequence of cotton 40 °C and cotton 60 °C with full load and partial load is introduced, b) a test procedure for measuring power consumption in low power modes is introduced, c) a formula to calculate the energy consumption of washing machines including low power modes is added, d) the detergent dosage is reduced to 75 % for cotton and synthetic/blends, e) the detergent dosage of the reference machine type 1 is adjusted to maintain the washing performance level of the reference machine type 2, f) the reference machine type 1 is to be used for testing according to Commission Regulations with regard to energy labelling and ecodesign, g) control procedures for checking measured values in comparison to values declared by the manufacturer under consideration of permitted tolerances are updated. The responsible committee is Subcommittee UK 513.1 "Wäschepflegegeräte" ("Laundry care appliances") of the DKE.
